Dutch in Rio, WI (5 miles Reedsburg), *but phone!

  • 4

Anyone who likes Dutch food and good coffee, and finds themselves within an hour's drive of Rio, might want to check out this restaurant. Dutch Old Mill, I think it's called.
The proprietor, Peter, believes in "slow food," doesn't like American food, is very opinionated, and a very good cook.
Address: 208 Lincoln Ave, P.O. Box 338, Rio, WI 53960.
Tel/fax: 920 992 3737.

I forgot!!! It's wise to phone him before you come. And his sign says he's open 24 hourse a day.

  1. By Dutch, I assume you mean Hollander.

      What language are you speaking?

        English. In English, dutch means German or Hollander. Using dutch to describe a restaurant is ambiguous. Though I would think it is much more likely to find a German restaurant in a small town in WI, I would not be sure it was not a Hollander place.

          Actually, most Nederlanders (Hollander is not the appropriate term either) in Iowa and Wisconsin identify themselves as Dutch. Germans consider themselves "German" or "Deutsch" and would never call themselves Dutch, at least not out there.

          Dutch is "dutsh" and Deutsch is "doitsh".

          Using Dutch to describe a restaurant in America means Nederlander.
